हरे मुरारे मधु कैटभ हारे
गोपाल गोविन्द मुकुन्द शौरे

* प्रलय पयोधि जले, ध्रुतवन असि वेदम
विहित वहित्र चरित्रम अखेदम
केशव, धृत मिन शरिर, जय जगदिश हरे

* चलयसि विक्रमने, बलिम अद्भुत वमन
पद नख निर जनित जन पवन
केशव, धृत वमन रुप, जय जगदिश हरे

* वितरसि दिक्षु रने, दिक-पति कमनियम
दश-मुख मोउलि बलिम रमनियम
केशव, धृत रम शरिर, जय जगदिश हरे

* निन्दसि यज्न्य विदेर-अहह श्रुति जतम
सदय ह्रुदय दर्शित पशु घतम
केशव, धृत बुद्ध शरिर, जय जगदिश हरे

* म्लेच्च निवह निधने कलयसि करवलम
धुमकेतुम इव किमपि करलम
केशव, धृत कल्कि शरिर, जय जगदिश हरे

वेदन उद्धरते, जगन-निवहते, भुगोलम उद-बिभ्रते
दैत्यम दरयतेम बलिम चलयते, क्षत्र क्षयम कुर्वते
पोउलस्यम जयते, हलम कलयते, करुन्यम अतन्वते
म्लेच्चन मुर्चयते, दशक्रुति क्रुते, ख़्रुश्नय तुभ्यम नमः.

The Song is dedicated to my Father who probably if he were to like an actor it would have to be Prithviraj Kapoor.. and I believe he would have loved this song from Anand Math.. it did appear to me that he was fond of Bankim Chandra Chatterjee.. and my mother too really loved Bankim Da and another Bengal literary figure Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyaya deeply.. I have not read Bankim Chandra Chatterjee.. even if I read Anand Math I have no idea as of now.. except maybe the fact that it was historically very important work..  it does seem that I must have atleast read it partially.. as Shachindra and Mahendra Sharma would often bring Hindi novels of great significance from theur Sachivalaya library.. I beleive for my mother who was very fond of reading..
